Edmund Optics Inc. Datasheets for Fiber Optic Light Guides

Fiber optic light guides are bundles of optical fibers used for the controlled deliver of light. They tend to be more rigid, and transmit well in both the visible and near-infrared (near-IR) regions of the electromagnetic spectrum.  Fiber optic light guides are sometimes called fiber optic light pipes (fiber optic lightpipes).
